The more I travel, the more my interest grows in photography.
So it’s not surprising that most of my photos are taken on the go – traveling, hiking, walking the streets. I’ve trekked the Himalayas, paddled the Amazon jungle, hiked the Andes, river-rafted in Peru, shivered under winter stars in the California desert. It’s a restless wandering, camera in tow. I like the aspect of the camera that keeps me focused in the present, enhancing my appreciation of what is going on around me.
